As a Mummy of two, I know how quickly our children grow. I have created a range of ceramic & silver keepsakes which capture your child's unique handprints, footprints & fingerprints.
Our keepsakes make wonderful gifts for Grandparents and loved ones who can so often be very tricky to buy for.
I began my journey with Lollipops & Ladybirds in June 2011, running appointments from my home in Cwmbran and visiting local groups and events. The idea developed after an expensive experience getting clay impressions made of my children's hands & feet. I had struggled to find anywhere locally offering this service at a reasonable price. After some extensive product & market research, I took the plunge!
Pricing has always been extremely important, and I was determined to offer fantastic, personal products at a price that suits everyone’s budget.
After an exceptionally busy 2 years (thank you so much to all of our loyal customers for spreading the word about us & helping us establish ourselves!), I made the decision to move the business from my home to a shop in Cwmbran. After months searching for the right premises, we opened our doors on 12th October 2013. You will find us in the @ Leisure Complex in Cwmbran Town Centre next to Kaspa's (in the same building as Harvester and Frankie & Benny's)
I spent lots of time working out how I wanted our shop to look. It had to have a homely feel - I wanted to create a little haven in a busy town for Mummies to escape. Our coffee shop is open to everyone, serving hot & cold drinks, cake & snacks. We have a free play area for the under 4's to enjoy whilst older children will love getting creative with us. We have a huge range of pottery to choose from and with prices starting from just £6 it is an enjoyable and affordable way to entertain the children for an hour or two. We don't charge a studio fee either, so pricing is very clear from the outset.
We are open just for coffee & lunch too and non-painting customers are also welcome to use our cafe at any time. The perfect place to meet your Mummy friends or call in on your own & feel at home. We have lots of room for buggies, a baby change facility and highchairs. We try to create a very comfortable environment for breastfeeding Mummies too.
We cater for Birthday Parties (see our parties page) Grown Up Painting Evening's (available for exclusive hire too) Brownies, Schools, Nurseries etc.
We still offer a mobile service for customers who wish to hold prints parties at their own home or at a group but availability is quite limited. Please contact us to make arrangements.
Whilst appointments are not always necessary for clay impressions, silver jewellery and prints on pottery, we do recommend that you call ahead first or book an appointment to avoid disappointment as trained staff will not always be available to take your prints.
We would love to see you & look forward to your visit. Feel free to drop by for a browse at our sample range and if you like the look of something, we can get you booked in.
